a settlement based on a two-state solution. let me be blunt here. president barack obama has given great speeches in the last two days or so. but now the challenge that faces president barack obama is to translate his rhetoric into political action. let me be blunt, too. president barack obama gave up on brokering a peace settlement between the palestinians and the israelis almost after the first year. prime minister benjamin netanyahu is more interested in on the ground than a two-state solution. we shall wait and see if president barack obama, this great american, would invest serious political capital in brokering a peace settlement between two camps. >> and how interested are the palestinians and abbas in a two-state solution? i was reading this week. he was writing that this term work the-state solution, is a real fallacy. for many reasons, one of which is because palestinian authority does not actually want a two-state solution. abbas has written before that he would never recognize israel's authority. and as you know, i'm sure, two-state solutions have been brokered and offered, 1
government. president obama has recognized the great effort that san francisco has started and want to continue. so we can eradicate violence here in san francisco and start a global movement. everyone here is touched by domestic violence. if you say you don't know, it may be your co-worker. or your sister that doesn't want to speak out. it could be your mother or grandmother. i do this in memory of a fellow co-worker, laura sweat, who was murdered by her husband. and in that moment two young children were left without a mother. i do this in her memory and in hope that the world will see no more violence. thank you for joining one billion rising. you have the power to save lives.

in 1984, and with obama in 2012. they knew what they were doing. >> your interpretation gives one great hope for the future of democracy. >> when you look at what the republican party analysis of itself was, the fear was that the electorate is a different electorate, and it is not just much more of a minority electorate. it wants some serious social and economic safety net that is different than what they hear from republicans. >> the face of conservatism is rush limbaugh. we all agree with that. there is another face on this table, but let's stay with that. he puts down the results by saying obama won with low information voters, that they were sort of stupid, they do not understand the issues and they fall for this stuff. that is the same argument we heard in a much more sophisticated way from somebody else. >> rush limbaugh, the face of the republican party -- that is a little -- >> that is a little harsh. if we are going to choose someone in the media as the face of the republican paty, i would nominate charles. >> i would second the nomination. >> if nominated, i will not run. but
with you that barack obama is one of the great candidates in american history and that explains why the democrats did so well in 2008 and 2012 -- we had a great candidate -- in 2010, when you neutralize the factor of the candidate, the republicans prevailed, which tells me that republican ideas are strong, and you have to have a candidate or a class of people that can explain it. >> that is the subject of the message to the american people, and they bought it. >> but in 2010, obamacare was a factor and it will be a factor in 2014, do you not agree? >> it might very well be, but i will point out that we have returned to the days of yesteryear when dr. krauthammer was laboring in the democratic vineyards, and the explanation was ronald reagan won because he was a superior candidate, he was engaging, likeable and charismatic, and democratic opponents were not. you have to accept that when voters vote for a candidate and a party, they know what they are doing. they are not just being bamboozled by some lapel pin or hairspray. that is frankly what they did when they elected ronald reagan
, but expand on that coalition. the obama campaign had a great operation in place. while we sit back and figure out when republicans will revive, when the civil war will end between the establishment wing and the tea party wing, i am for the tea party one. keep going. i like these candidate. they make me look sane. both political parties are in pretty rough shape. while the republicans have 10%, we have 30%. 2014 is important for the democratic party. we have to look at the electorate and make sure that our message and future messages will galvanize and motivate those to turn out voters as well. >> how long is the democratic party the party of barack obama? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a clear distinction between who they are and republicans. i want
, 20 rounds. 75-round clips. everything that you see on the wall here. thank you, president obama. >> michael: that's a great colorado accent he has, too. there is this element in your state, dave. how is that being reconciled. >> there is a huge debate in the legislature over gun control. there have been protests and staged protests by the conservative movement against the gun control measures. they were modest measures, measures limiting magazines but they were portrayed as assaults on the second amendment. here's the thing as the polling show, as we've seen more and more mass shootings and some of them have taken place right here in colorado, that has not surprisingly shifted public opinion. it shifted mass popular opinion to say modest steps for gun control is not an assault on the second amendment. we can have modest regulations and also protect constitutional rights. the right does not want to have anybody believe that, but those are the facts of what is happening in the legislature. >> michael: yes, we're going to keep our eyes on colorado because the idea that they're talk

's everything go, doesn't -- you know, obama is doing a great job and everything else. the american public knows it is not true. host: jim, thank you for the call. is that tactic different from president obama, president reagan, or president bush? guest: no. all presidents do that. the one point i totally agree with is that the press generally let's presidents say what they want to say and then challenges it in a different way. i mean, you get use today a president's normal line. this president blames the republicans, that's true. ok. so what? he blames the republicans. the republicans in fact are in one house of congress, and they are not letting him get anything done. that's true. he plames them. who is listening? he hopes the public is. it doesn't necessarily resonate with the press on a day-to-day basis. host: this is only anecdotal, but often in a news conference is more news made in the second half after the president has followed up on his talking points, and all pts have them rvings and the expected questions, but often there are the unexpected questions. guest: that's right. the example
. seemed that peres and netanyahu gave the president a pretty warm welcome. peres called obama a great president and world leader. i think they spent like 15 or 20 minutes together and there he's signing the welcome guest book. did you read anything into what you heard, ambassador ginsburg so far today or see anything that you think is notable at this point? >> well, two things. first of all, chris, the fact is that the president made it very clear from the time that he landed at the airport that he was going to talk directly to the israeli people to try to reassure them that this alliance between the united states and israel is unshakable. and there's a lot of suspicion among israelis over the president's intentions given the turmoil in the region. number two, the president made it very clear that he also believes that israel's security is dependent on reaching the peace with the palestinians. that's why he used the euphemism that he looks for a peace in the holy land. and so there's no doubt that with respect to the messages that he sent on the ground, chris, it was, one, i have your
and as our country continues to celebrate the beginning of the second term of our great president, president barack obama. now, it's easy to take for granted the progress that we've made as a country because we are forever looking to solve today's problems and as we continue to meet tomorrow's challenges as we shape our future. but what it is, it's definitely worthwhile to take a look back at the great works of our predecessor and the brave men and women who have paved the way for progress that we enjoy here in the 21st century. and if you look around, many of those men and women are right here with us in the rotunda today. we remember the people who braved police dogs and fire hoses turned against them by their own government officials in the south, people who believed that an idea -- believed in an idea that we're all created equal and that we're willing to risk and that we're willing to risk their life in the purchase soul of a lofty promise in america. today we celebrate black history month and the catalyst to progress that the emancipation proclamation as well as the march on washingto

[audience reacts] >> stephen: i know. obviously this leaves a huge hole in south american politics and an even
thing barack obama drained is our national treasury. during our current fiscal battles, president obama has gone to great lengths to deceive and lie about the real consequences of sequestration. from teacher furloughs to longer airport lines to criminal its running free, the obama administration has lied to the american people. they have even closed the white house for public tours. remarkably, the many false claims from the white house had even prompted some in the mainstream media to push back. one of the reasons why the white house thought it could get away with it is because the media has always been in their back pocket. you just have to look at all the obama scandals, with the latest being the tragedy where four brave americans died -- were murdered in benghazi, to see the media's complacency. the obama administration has not been forthcoming with information on benghazi, and congress has failed in its oversight responsibilities. citizens united recently launched a campaign calling on members of congress to create a select committee to investigate fully the benghazi tragedy. it ha

the spunk, the nerve, the verve that rand paul show. you can't take the position, any fight against obama is great, and embarrass him, you have to look at the end of the day, rand paul is for retreat from the world and a principle more or less neo-isolationist view and doesn't think we need to be on the offensive around the world and i think that's dangerous. i'm happy to debate it, he has every right to make his views known. >> megyn: some critics say he will not be successful in getting the nomination, nor in winning because in his libertarian way criticized the civil rights act, look, you can't legislate people into not discriminating, and the consumers will reject them and cards fall where they may. i don't, i think that was a rachel maddow gotcha moment. and one week after he's a skilled politician now and this is about imagery and being able to deliver had a message and it was horrific to see senator mccain come out there like a grumpy old man, decrying college libertarians in their dorm rooms and getting excited about rand paul. and if senator mccain had some of those college liber

into office in 2009, the obama administration put a great deal of emphasis on settlements, seemed to side with the palestinian view that there should be a moratorium on settlements. that was something the prime minister was willing to do for a short period of time, ten months, but was not willing to do again. there seems to be some flexibility in the palestinian position, but look, there's a real lack of trust between prime minister netanyahu and president abbas. the ability of the president to kind of bridge that gap is going to take probably months before you see potential start of negotiations. you know, the middle east peace process will consume much of the president's second term in office. >> a lot of this will depend on his relationship with both of these men, the president's relationship with both of these men. if you saw some encouraging signs with netanyahu, let me play for you what abbas had to say after what he called useful talks. let's listen. all right. we don't have it, but i'm going to read it to you. president obama said, if we're going to succeed, part of what we're goi

with our great allie and he and netanyahu must deal with series issues. president obama is said that the use of chemical weapon this is in syria would be a game-changer. quote unquote, now back here the markets get back to rally mode. but, did the fed-head ever so subtly indicate an every so slightly less easy posture? that is my take and we will debate it later on. here is something that investors and businesses and consumers do not want to hear, it's a new tax on the internet. even downloads from ituness, who thinks that is a good idea? not me, here is good news "the kudlow report" begins right now. president obama in israel for the first same in his presidency, securing the relations with the allie in the middle east, here is what he had to say when greeted by benjamin netanyahu. it's in our fundamental security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger and more prosperous and makes the world a better place. >> so question is, what exactly is the president hoping to accomplish in israel. here now we republican former u.s. ambassador and dan senor the coauthor o

gentlemen speak. >> president obama, it is a great privilege for me and for the people of israel to host you here in jerusalem. it was a real pleasure to sit with a true friend, very knowledgeable, unfortunately, and see that we can agree and discuss with you openly and freely. after the meeting we just had, i am with more confidence that your vision can be transformed the middle east. your vision is achievable. you arrived here already with an impressive record of answering our needs. particularly an unforgettabley n the domain of security. i want to thank you personally, dear friend, for the long days and for many long, sleepless nights that we know about them, which you spent caring for our country and for our future. in an age that is both global and domestic, interests may divide people. vision may unite them. there is a common vision uniting us. to bring peace as soon as possible. the greatest danger is a nuclear iran, so you said so you do. we trust your policy which calls to first by nonmilitary -- by nonmilitary means with a clear statement that both other options remain on the tabl

.at if you looked at the budget, we have not had in the great increase in spending since obama took office except the that the food stamps and unemployment insurance. except in food stamps and unemployment insurance. programs we have enacted that are designed to increase during recessions like unemployment andrance and food stamps some money comes into the economy so the recession does not turn into a depression. the large deficits occur because of the depression. if you got rid of this recession, that would reduce the deficit by 40%. host: a tweet -- guest: entitlements means social security and medicare. there is nothing wrong with them, basically. so security -- social security, everyone says it will have a problem in 2032. under the assumption economic growth will be under 2.4% constantly. the economic growth of the united states has been in the 3% since the civil war. they put up three budgets a year. middle onequotes the as gospel. it is been wrong about 90% of the time. the optimistic one has been right about monday% of the team. if we do see we have a problem with social security,
of it that way. it's a shame that politics can make a great person not do great things. >> in jordan there are protests every friday. but obama's determination not to dictate feels weak to some. many argue that if many american presidents forced itself on the meevels, the region is now forcing itself upon president obama. the president has already disappointed people in the arab world. if he doesn't get peace talks going again that will make things more did i feel. >> i spoke a short time ago with richard, the president on the council on foreign relations and author of "foreign policy begins at home." richard, thank you for joining me. although it seems to have been a successful trip for relations with israel has it done much to nudge the peace process forward? >> it's in some ways set the foundation or provided a context. i've been a diplomat before and there are times you can do peace plans, times situationes are right for specific proposals. this is not one of them. this was a trip to go over the head of the israeli government, to build a context of support. once that context exis

: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
